ⓘ Members of the Western Australian Legislative Council, 1950–1952

This is a list of members of the Western Australian Legislative Council from 22 May 1950 to 21 May 1952. The chamber had 30 seats made up of ten provinces each electing three members, on a system of rotation whereby one-third of the members would retire at each biennial election.

Several provinces have been renamed in the election. The electoral districts act 1947 was an obvious need in the Parliament allocated a place, instead of appointing three election commissions, which were to revise the boundaries of certain criteria. The redistribution was published on 21 December 1948, but has not come into force until 22 may 1950.

The name change was the following:

  • South-East Province → South Province.
  • Metropolitan-Suburban Province → Suburban Province.
  • South Province → South-East Province.
  • Central Province → Midland Province.
  • East Province → Central Province.
